    All OK before performing Reset of PC. Now dead


    Well, I thought I knew what I was doing. The computer is an Acer Veriton VN4620G-i5333X. Originally a Windows 8 computer that I upgraded to 10 when 10 was released long ago. The upgrade went seamlessly. The computer has been sitting idle for a couple years. I decided I would try to sell it. To wipe any chance of my data from it I performed a Reset of PC to erase everything and start over. That is when it all went South.

    The reset appeared to be progressing OK until I noticed the PC rebooting over and over again. Finally to display a message that something was corrupted. I decided to use the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and boot to the flash drive. Again, everything looked fine. It even got to the Hello etc. Never actually got to the desktop. The last action it started to perform was applying any needed updates. A while later it is started rebooting over and over again.

    I tried several things, but now it is even worse. The computer will start to boot and almost immediately shutdown.

    Can anyone offer an idea to save this little PC?

    :)

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".

    Unable to reset the pc

    Hello,

    If you are having that message while trying to reset your computer, We suggest you to create an installation media for Windows 10 using Media
    Creation Tool
    and perform a Reset.

    Once the installation media is created, follow the steps below:

    • Insert the installation media you created, and then restart your PC.
    • On the Install Windows screen, select Repair your computer.
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot. From there, you can use Safe Mode. Select
      Advanced Options >Reset This PC>Remove everything.
    • After the reset is complete, check for status.

    Give us an update on what happens.

    PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
